7 thoughts on “Monday’s Macro: Cape Honeybee

  1. It has been heartening to see bees and butterflies pass through our garden in significant numbers of late. This is a lovely photograph.

    1. Is it just coincidence or are we seeing an unburdening of nature? Here too, though the weather having settled, could account for the increase in insects – the butterflies particularly! Being home based now, observing the daily routine of garden critters is full of surprise and joy!

    1. Thanks Eliza. It’s surprising how macro shots render beauty out of the mundane. I’m a great fan of this hardy plectranthus as it’s pungent fragrance deters the rock hyrax and to have it flourishing in the garden is an added bonus in attracting it’s colourful visitors, particularly the honey bees and the beautiful sunbirds 🙂
